it a little bit. but it's also given president obama a clans to look presidential, be presidential, be not only commander in chief, be comforter in chief, which is a big part of the job description for president. for romney, john, it's a little more difficult, because as you say, he's got no specific responsibilities when it comes to this. and so, he needs to be sympathetic. he needs to be involved. he needs to be concerned. and i think he's doing the right thing by not criticizing president obama, by not criticizing chris christie for this unity, show of unity with president obama, and just sticking to campaigning. >> he has to watch one of his top supporters and surrogates, chris christie, gushing over the president. that can't be completely easy, richard. >> well, and you know, what you saw from both these men yesterday is that good government was good politics. it was good politics both for president obama and for governor christie. i mean, governor christie is governor in a state that's overwhelmingly democratic. to have him there with the democratic president, helping people,
. there are rules on the books that are needlessly stifling job creation and economic growth. we will fix them. it sounds great, doesn't it? i wish those were my words. but that is what president obama said to the u.s. chamber of commerce when he spoke here just over a year ago. so what i would like to do during my time with you today is give you a brief case study of how one agent, cpsc, is doing in implementing the sentiment that president obama spoke to you about. first of all, let me give you a quick overview of cpsc. as lisa said, we have reached a broad regulatory scope. we are a small agency of 500 people on my 120 million-dollar budget. nevertheless, we have a really important mission. a mission that i feel very passionately about. all of us are consumers. none of us want our children or our families dealing with unsafe products. it is an important agency with a very important mission. the agency is made up of five commissioners. three democrats, two republicans. however, a year ago, one of my colleagues retired from the agency. so for the past year, it has been two republicans into de
the soersz issues facing this nation, starting with jobs, the economy and the debt. in the end we couldn't say the same about the president. that is an about face. the telegraph endorsed then senator obama in 2008. >>> disney is taking over the star wars business, the company shelling out more than $4 billion to buy lucas film from star wars creator george lucas. this is really big but what got everyone's attention is the news of a star wars trilogy beginning with star wars vii. presumably this picks up after the ewoks. the emperor dies and we'll pick up with this new trilogy. >> i think it's awesome. >> it's basically good for the force. disney churns movies out and don't make terrible mistakes. >> it's good for the force unless the movies are like the first three. >> they don't make mistakes that bad. >> i'm happy about it. thank you, john. >>> president obama heading to new jersey today. brand new polls that john was just mentioning from "the new york times"/cbs quinnipiac polling, virtually tied in florida. look at virginia and in ohio, the president is holding a five-point lead on r
the private sector to grow and create jobs. he dinged the president in a new ad today suggesting somewhere down the road he may appoint a secretary of business, watch. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is add another bureaucrat. why not have a president who actually understands business? >> reporter: now, as the poll numbers keep moving incrementally as each of the candidates making their final arguments it is interesting to watch the battleground states flip back and forth. obama is up one day, romney sup the next, vice versa. it is clear indication, whether early voting, absentee balloting or getting out there on election day, in these battleground states, jenna, each and every vote really does count in 2012. jenna: in five days anything can really happen as we know as surgeon jalists. john roberts live in virginia today. jon: brand new numbers on the race for the white house with "fox news poll"s showing it is too close to call. president obama and positive romney now tied at 46% after the president dropped a percentage point in the
my job done. and the key is going to be what happens after this election, whether the spirit of cooperation you saw between chris christie and barack obama, which is exactly the spirit of cooperation that america needs right now, can that be reinstated and continued after the election? >> apparently the question was whether he felt awkward with the president given his active support for mitt romney. >> completely appropriate. right on the money. >> why would you feel awkward -- why would you feel awkward doing your job? >> i think that one could raise the question, this is how ugly and disrespectful -- >> the climate is. >> -- of the office of the president has been in the last several months. let's not act like this happens in isolation. they have done everything to disrespect this president as president. and i think it's in that climate, the question was asked -- and i think that christie had to answer it. it's not like they have respected this president. >> right. >> as president. and i feel that the president was acting as president, but they have some members of the chri
in the job. i would list a couple of. i think there was a broad recognition at the beginning of the obama administration when chris was initially serving that the view was that we were perhaps overinvested in terms of our engagement in the middle east and south asia. they were important, they were necessary, but that we needed to diversify and perhaps focus more of our time and attention on what would become what i think all of us argue the main primary focus of diplomacy in the 21st century. now it is sometimes said by a few that were back in asia and others have said we have never left. they're both true, and in certain respects they are both false. in fact for us to be successful in asia, reto do much more over a longer sustained period. like very much the way you started, victor, focusing bipartisan. it is not just important during the e electrical seasons. it's important always. making sure there's a sustained commitment to stronger engagement will be probably the essential future -- feature of our success going forward. secondly, it's the case we have been here in the asia-pacific r
on that in just a couple of minutes. >> all right ahead, sandy has both president obama and governor romney standing down on the politics with the presidential race exactly one week away. they have canceled their public events today and friday's all-important jobs report might be delayed. we'll talk about the storm's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have
could potentially, if it's damaging, take president obama off the campaign trail as well and have him come back to d.c. for emergency purposes to be the president of the united states, which we remember is his job. so you know, we have to see how this plays out, but schedules are being adjusted now through tuesday, so far, so we'll see what happens. >> that's as it pertains to the campaigning. then, long term, there are some states, connecticut among them, that have already declared states of emergency, and there are potential scenarios if some of the states take direct hits from the hurricane, power out for days if not more than a week, then that would impact the electronic balloting for many places, potentially, come tuesday november 6th, election day. what kind of preparations, if any, can be made right now for that? >>achines are used in pennsylvania which may or may not be a battleground, in virginia, new hampshire, those are the key states along the east coast. a bigger question, fred, because it's such a hypothetical right now is just the weather impacting turnout. if the rain
that president obama can showrd shal leadership and he's helping people, using fema and other tools of the administration. i'm kind of skeptical of that because i think people understand that that's a president's job. i don't see the president getting much mileage out of that. but who knows. >> this is a random question. if the election were held tomorrow, would they ever cancel or delay the actual election itself due to weather,s that that ever happened? >> not to my knowledge. i think it would be very, very difficult to do. but, you know, stranger things have happened. i'm not aware that that's ever happened. i mean, it certainly happened in particular jurisdictions. you remember in 9/11, they moved the mayoral election in new york city. so certainly there's press department for in the catastrophic circumstance moving the date, but i've never seen that in a presidential election and i'd be very surprised if that happens. >> john harwood, stay safe today. appreciate your perspective on all of this. we'll still be dealing with this football metaphor when the game ends. >> when we co
one who i thought was in the end, could be a credible alternative to obama. but as we've gotten closer, i think romney is much better than merely a credible alternative. i think his policies are sound. i think he's got a real idea how to create jobs. the other thing i like about him is that there is not a hint of scandal in this man's life. neither in his personal life, nor his career. this is an honest man full of integrity and it will be nice to have that in the white house. >> gretchen: when i interviewed hi and ann together three years ago issues they said to me then, you will never read about us in the tabloids, ever. they said it am fatticcally. listen to ryan and romney as they seem to be talking about hope and change. imagine that. >> this is a turfing point for america that we need to take a different course, that we can not stay on the course we're on. i happen to think that the american people understand we need dramatic and real change if we're going to have a bright and prosperous future. >> look, we believe in the principles that built this country. we believe in liberty,
with the storm may have an impact. if obama is seen objectively as hunkering down and not playing any games this week, really working, no mickey mouse, no big bird stuff. just do the damn job you were elected to this week. i think it'll take the poison and anger against him out of the race. and a little bit for this whole election, a little bit makes a bit of difference. and i think getting together and not being -- i think it's great that bloomberg said nice things about andrew cuomo, that's a new one, or christie said nice things about the president. they're operating like it's not intermurals anymore, it's the big game and that's always better for the country and the incumbent. >> off of what you just said, governor christie's endorsement yesterday of the president as president doing his job as you just indicated was pretty powerful stuff. >> and i think it's because christie wants to be a good governor, he wants to be president some day and the way to be president is a be a good governor and it doesn't hurt to kiss the president. it all makes sense if you think about it. >> let's talk a
administration's storm response. here's what christie said of president obama on "piers morgan." >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do is get the job done and when someone asks me an honest question, i'll give an honest question. how's the president to deal with on this? he's been excellent to deal with and i look forward to him tomorrow. >> he question it is president's leadership at the republican national convention. >> we need politicians that care more about doing something and less about being something. it is time to end this era of absentee leadership in the oval office and send real leaders back to the white house. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate "fox & friends" tried to get him to dial back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney goes to new jersey to tour the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i least bit concerned or interested. >> right. >> i have a job to do here in new jersey much bigger than p
when... he attacked forty-seven percent of americans. his companies shipped jobs overseas. his plan cuts millionaires' taxes, but raises yours. he'll voucherize medicare... and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said... and what his plan would do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. >>> time for our facebook fan of the day. today we say hello to brittany wharton. brittany tells us today is her 25th birthday. happy birthday. [ applause ] >> all she asked for was her power to stay on. she didn't ask for much. hopefully she got what we wanted. so for your chance to be tomorrow's fan, just log onto our facebook page and leave a comment under brittany's picture. happy birthday. >>> we've got reporters all across the region keeping our eyes on the aftermath of sandy. among those is holly morris. she's been reporting live from annandale where there has been some damage out there. hey, holly. >>reporter: i said no power and we lost power. i will be careful what i say. us coming back online is a lot easier and a quicker fix than what
adding a new chair in his cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street. [cheers and applause] >> i mean unfortunately what you've seen before your very eyes is a campaign that keeps on shrinking and shrinking and shrinking to smaller things. he's been out talking about how he's going to save big bird and then playing silly word games with my last name, or first. and then attack me day in and day out, attacking me doesn't make an agenda, doesn't get people back to work. [cheers and applause] >> we don't need the secretary of business to understand business, we need a president who understands the business, and i do, and that's why i'll be able to get to economy going. [cheers and applause] >> this isn't a time for small measures. this is a time for greatness, this is a time for big change, for real change, and that's why just as your next senator said, this is a time where from day one he's going to make changes, i'm going to make real changes, i'm going to get this economy going from day one we're making changes. let me tell you some of the things we're going to do. we've got

the auto industry but for who? ohio or china? under president obama g.m. cut 15,000 americans jobs. but they're planning to double the number of cars built in china which means 15,000 more jobs for china and now comes word that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in china. >> cenk: wait a minute! president obama saved all of those jobs in ohio and michigan and all across the country! they're turning the truth on its held. oh, jeep is not making -- they're make the jeeps in china. don't take my word for it. go to jeep. they said... let's set the record state. jeep has no intention of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. in other words romney is lying! now, they also started running an ad they used to run earlier against obama which is not true. they didn't announce it to the media because they didn't want to have everybody talk about here they go again with their lies. >> announcer: if you want to know president obama's second term agenda, look at his first. gutted the work requireme
into-- >> you're telling me that if president obama had not done a good job that colin powell, general powell would have supported president obama regardless absolutely not. >> i'm saying he might be cutting him a little more slack. >> you can paint it how you want to, but i don't agree with you. >> i ask a provocative question, which is what i do here. >> cenk: just ask an asinine question. >> i love his euphemism there a shared experience. >> cenk: there is truth to some degree. not in what colin powell has done, but how bill o'reilly is projecting. i vote on race so i assume colin powell is going to vote on race. >> i think the notion, and god bless arthel neville nope, nope, nope. >> she got that job because she was black. >> the chairman of the joints chief of staff, a four-star general, who has sent men to die for the country is going to be, like oh, i don't care. he could be doing a bad job but i'm going to support him. i'm going to put more americans in harm's way because we're the same race? >> cenk: why didn't he support jesse jackson all those years. >> or herman cain. and c
obama isn't. he is moving jobs to china. >> this is the most shameless, disenagainous dishonest political ad that i have ever seen in all of my years. when it came to stepping up to save chrysler and general motors. barack obama bet on the workers there, and mitt romney said let them and detroit go bankrupt. and i sat in a lot of those auto recovery meetings, and i was in the last meeting where the president had to make some really tough decisions. and when it came to chrysler and jeep, he had a lot of questions. six or seven things needed to happen to make sure that that company got what it needed to get up off of the mat, and the president said if we get all of those six things right what are the chances that chrysler survived. and they said 51-49, and the president said i'm going to bet on them, on chrysler and those workers. chrysler has paid their loan back six years early. >> bill: yep. >> we're not shipping jobs to china to build jeeps, we're adding jobs in this country and ohio to build jeeps. and you don't need to look any further than the press i
job. in terms of climate change he named a few politicians -- >> stephanie: and obama didn't say i'm going to lower the level of the oceans as you recall. it is unbelievable. >> no al gore said the president should have said that and that's what the goal should be. any politician who uses that as a punch line should be punched in the nose. >> stephanie: exactly. bernard goldberg. >> do you think a number of reporters are sort of wishing at some level that the hurricane had not hit blue states like new york and new jersey like ohio -- i mean direct hit. i'm saying this only half tongue and cheek, but i'm thinking more than a few of them wish it would have hit there, because that might help president obama look presidential -- >> stephanie: he is gross. >> he is an idiot. >> stephanie: i mean really. >> that's who bill o'reilly turns to. >> stephanie: uh-huh. >> do you think that maybe just a few might possibly believe? i mean do you think that maybe just a few fox news pundits might be off their rockers? [ laughter ] >> i mean it doesn't matter where this hurricane h
-cost energy and desirable high-paying jobs. >> cenk: yeah, nonsense. the reality is president obama has been terrific in weakening regulations. let me give a quote from the "washington post." obama has actually finalized fewer regulations than either clinton or bush at the same point in their terms. thank you for being more right wing than those guys. how about the issue of drilling and coal? look at this, 241 million more oil barrels under president obama's first three years than under the last three years of george w. bush. 75% increase in drilling rigs from 29 to 2011. u.s. oil production at the highest level since 1997. and most permits for deep water drilling since '07 even though we had the bp disaster happen on his watch. you're not going to outdrill. you're not going to out-coal president obama. how is it that climb climate change working for president obama? would you brag about it? why do they do it, it's the money, lebowsky, of course it's the money. look at how much the oil company spent, $167,000 spent every day lobbying congress. every $1 spent on lobbying is equivalent to $30
. >> i thought you said joe biden. >> caller: fantastic. and michelle obama, what a great job she's done with nutrition and everything. and the president is just -- he's the best! he absolutely -- i think the fact that he is so respected around the world and in this country that you have to say everything -- i want to see -- i would like to see the money go to all of us who stand behind the president. >> stephanie: did you see, by the way, they did every country in the world. they did a poll. they all overwhelmingly want obama except for pakistan. [ ♪ dramatic ♪ ] >> why? >> stephanie: i guess because he said we shouldn't move heaven and earth to get one man. obama said if we have actionable intelligence, we'll go in with or without pakistan's permission. mitt romney is like that's rude. >> i hope pakistan isn't voting in this election. >> who knows with karl rove. >> could get them to vote. mail in. mail in voting. >> stephanie: you would think the muslim socialist kenya would be the one -- >> you're right.
this project was being planned well, that the initial funds that were granted to us by president obama and with the great work of our congressional delegates and speaker pelosi and senator feinstein we would make sure to use it in the right way and creating the jobs and the investment that people wanted to see. u.s. transportation secretary ray lahood. please share this announcement. >> hello san francisco. i am delighted to be here to celebrate with all of you three very important champions for this project. senator feinstein who doesn't often call me, but when she does i pay attention, and four years ago when i went to see her about a number of issues this project was number one on her list. we need to get it done. we need to get a full funding grant agreement. she has been a champion for this project from the beginning going back -- i am sure she will tell you, i don't know how far. speaker pelosi, a champion for this project. [applause] speaker pelosi doesn't call me very often, but when she does it's always important. four years ago when i took this job i went to see the s
capital outsourcing jobs to freeport. sensata technologies. i love this. someone sent me the obama gear. the difference between obama and romney obama's gear and buttons made in america. romney's gear and buttons made in china. >> here's a little one. eight days to go. he hasn't released his taxes. no one is talking about that for the first time in modern presidential history he's not going to do it. there would be lots of things in there. i think that this election started with 47% of the country one way and 47% of the country the other way. there wasn't going to be that much movement. the thing that's discouraging to me and again going back to this video we made is just how many people i know who are progressives who have progressive views on some of the issues are really seriously considering this -- considering romney. i think it is really important for us as we know people who sort of have similar social views to us who may be thinking about this, to really get to them on these issues. they're dismissive of the
in "the war room." >> this isn't a date. these are people's jobs. these are people's lives. >> only four days to go until the election and the final push begins. team obama and team romney crisscross the country making their case and trying to pick up every last swing state vote they can. the ground game working around the clock. the air game, in carpet bomb mode. the surrogates, surrogating. two men, four days, and the future of our country at stake. if you're scared, get a dog. >> jennifer: first things first. let's get you up-to-date from the aftermath of hurricane sandy. today new york city announced it will not hold it's annual marathon after complaints that it would drain resources from emergency responders. one of the biggest problems facing the area has been a major gas shortage with many of the stations that are out of power or out of gas or both. today the federal government turned to the defense department to deliver 24 million gallons of extra fuel and lift restrictions on deliveries by foreign ships. governor andrew cuomo waved taxes on fuel tangors. in new jersey governor c
natty to china. i don't know if you knew that. >> stephanie: they keep trying to call the obama campaign desperate. he's just doing his job and getting kudos for it. republican governors among others. mitt romney, as you were saying is having the pathetic -- i'm canceling my campaign. clearly it was a campaign rally. photo op. >> people wearing fire obama t-shirts. >> stephanie: yeah, it was not campaign oriented. then there's grampy insane. where was he? yells at cloud. what was he talking about? benghazi or something? in the middle of a national emergency. >> they're still trying to bring up benghazi. >> stephanie: he's lying so, incompetent. >> famous line is saying he was in las vegas when benghazi was going down and he learned his lesson. that's why he's paying attention here. >> stephanie: the president is trying to help real people in real need. as i said, you know, real people are obviously -- giving him cud dose for it. you're like grampy, what? not today. >> grandpa, it's not real. >> neither
deserves great credit. >> i appreciate his friendship. >> we're doing the jobs that people elected us to do. >> cenk: so, of course, that's the republican gore of new jersey. then we go to colin powell. >> will you endorse president obama? >> yes. i think we ought to keep on the track that we're on. >> cenk: and as we showed you earlier in the show, mayor bloomberg, widely nobody as an independent, used to be a republican has endorsed president obama but we're not done yet. the final elbow on top of mitt romney's head is from the london-based newspaper the economist which is economically conservative. nonetheless, they're endorsing president obama. here's why they say they're doing that. "the extremism of his party referring to mitt romney is mr. romney's greatest handicap. this newspaper yearns for the more tolerant conserve t.i. of ronald reagan where it meant keeping the state out of people bead rooms as well as out of their businesses. mr. romney shows no signs of wanting to revive it." now, you know romney
